PhD Scholarship (3 years, full time) in Social Data Science

Who are we looking for?
We are looking for a PhD candidate in the area of Social Data Science, broadly defined. The PhD project should deal with important problems and phenomena related to social (data) science (e.g., algorithmic fairness, challenges of digitalization, computational hermeneutics, machine behavior, misinformation). The PhD candidate is expected to address research questions using methods from computational/data science such as computational text analysis, machine learning, netnography, or network analysis.

Applicants can have a background either in a social science discipline (e.g., anthropology, economics, sociology, political science, psychology) or in (social) data science. We are looking for the most talented candidates that ideally bring some knowledge and experience in either one of the content areas, or the methods, or both.

The preferred starting date is 01.08.2022, but an earlier or later starting date might also be possible.

Application deadline 1 April 2022
